If you have an iPad, there’s a big chance that a lot of what you do revolves around it. It could have your daily schedule, as well as some of your most important notes. It could have all the apps that you need for work, as well as those that you need to track your day to day routine such as exercise routines, food intake, and a lot more. It is also likely that your iPad has a lot of things that could keep you entertained for hours. It will definitely have your favorite MP3s, movies, and videos, as well as a few of your favorite games. Knowing how much you have invested into it, the need to protect it becomes even more important. Protecting Your Gadget This is where the importance of iPad cases comes into play. With different materials used to absorb the impact when your iPad falls to the ground, as well as to prevent any scratches that could affect its appearance and performance, you can make sure that your iPad is free from any damage. Yes, some people may argue that you could always have your iPad replaced if something happens to it. You backup your files anyway, and you can always retrieve all your apps through your iCloud. But just imagine the inconvenience that this could cause. It could set you back for hours, even days, as you try to go back to your usual routine. Definitely, preventing a mishap by using a protective iPad case would be the best way to go. Function and Design The awesome thing about iPad cases nowadays is the fact that their designers have possibly thought of everything. The materials used vary, with a lot of them being durable enough to withstand the hardest bumps and the highest falls. Some have pockets for you to put other stuff into, while some have stands that allow you to position your iPad more conveniently as you use it. Some are classy, while some are practical. Some are for the more serious iPad users, while the others show a carefree and casual streak. Some show a rainbow of bright colors, and some stick to more neutral ones.

50 Crazy Stairs from Around the World

The stairs inside any structure are often dismissed as just a functional part of the building, nothing more. Although they are designed to aesthetically blend in with the rest of your interior or exterior, they are often not styled in such a way that they become the center of attention. Symbolism in Stairs There is so much more to a staircase than meets the eye. In fact, stairs have been used to symbolize a number of different things. In Freemasonry, stairs symbolize different lessons learned, eventually leading to a much higher level of knowledge. In literature, it is said that stairs symbolize a passage from one form of existence into another. In dream interpretation, descending a flight of stairs would mean going into one’s deeper self. These different symbols show that staircases should actually be given a lot more importance than usual, something that you could apply when thinking about a unique design as opposed to the traditional styles used. Designing Your Stairs Differently                                                                Having stairs put into your home usually meant having to choose between what paint should be used. Should it still appear like natural wood? Would you like the sides open, or closed? There is also that usually difficult task of choosing what kind of balusters to use, although some would just be content with plain panels under their handrails. These seem like tough enough design choices, considering that they are ‘just’ a set of stairs, right? For other people however, their design choices when it comes to their stairs are a lot more radical than what most people are used to. It could be integrating additional storage options into your home, discreetly hidden within your staircase. It could be interesting shapes added onto each step. It could also be a few fun aspects, such as an option to slide down instead of using the steps once again in descending from one level to another. You could allow your stairs to shed interesting shadows on the floor, or you could have it doubling as something else like display cases. No matter what interesting addition you choose to have, the entire aspect of creating and designing stairs for any structure just became more interesting. This is exactly what some contemporary designers want to show, giving some of their creations intricate details that make these sets of stairs not only more aesthetically appealing, but more functional as well. Here are some of them: Stairs inside a bookstore in Portugal Near Rajasthan, India Law Library, Des Moines, Iowa Musée National Gustave Moreau (Museum in Paris, France) Stairs Into The Clouds (Pico do Arieiro, Madeira Island, Portugal) Glow in the Dark Painted Stairs The Rock of Guatapé, Colombia UN City interior stairs in Denmark Prabalgad Fort dating from around 1458. Carved out of the rock at an an elevation of 2,300 feet. Maharashtra, India. “In the Eye of the Basilisk” by Lucas Portee Spiral Staircase at the Library of the Dutch Parliament Ribbon Chapel, Hiroshima Beautiful Wooden Staircase with matching Wooden Spiral Art Internal stairs, Sint-Pieters-Leeuw Tower Winding Staircase inside a Light House At the Garden of Cosmic Speculation, Dumfries, Scotland Wooden Spiral Staircase Stairs at Huashan, Shaanxi, China Colorful mosaic stairway in Goldengate Heights, San Francisco, CA Crazy Stairs at ‘The Red Wall’ Double Spiral stairs in Graz, Austria Mission Inn in Riverside, California Tourist Stairway – Huangshan Mountain, China Brigham Young University Stairs next to the Leshan Giant Buddha
